More explanation from Mr. Ignatieff after an event in Quebec yesterday.
“A coalition is legitimate, but my intention, my plan is to form a Liberal government,” Mr. Ignatieff said during a news conference after a meeting with Quebec party members. “I will play the cards the Canadian voters deal. I’m not going to deal with those cards until they are dealt, until they are on the table.”
… “What I want to do is go to voters in the next election, whenever that is, and say, vote Liberal. … That’s the message. It’s clear. It’s my plan A, my plan B, my plan C,” he said. “Then when the voters decide. … I’ll play the cards that are dealt and we will see what we can do to give Canada a compassionate, progressive, fiscally responsible government.”
